New Fullcut Mill FCR Expands Capabilities in Multi-Functional Milling
Also new at IMTS 2006 is the Fullcut Mill FCR. The new FCR's geometry expands capabilities in multi-functional milling, achieving supreme milling performance for ramping, helical milling, shoulder milling and peck-drilling operations.
Extremely sharp cutting edges with both high radial and axial rake angles achieve smooth and quiet endmilling in all materials. The sharp cutting edges of the unique indexable insert retains high strength and toughness due to the optimized eccentric relief angle for each cutter diameter.
Fullcut Mill FCR is available for diameters 5/8", 3/4", 1", and 1 ¼" in various length configurations with BIG PLUS integral shanks CAT40, BT30, and BT40 as well as HSK-A50 and A63 versions. Tests conducted by BIG concluded that the new cutter has 5x greater DOC capability over 3 other competitor tools.
